Banana Custard Gilded Gift Boxes

Hi everyone…

Just sharing another couple of projects that I made for my Demonstrations for Indigoblu..

I have a set of 3 x nesting oval boxes and have decorated the large and smaller of the 3… hope to complete the 3rd one next weekend when I travel up to Inverness next weekend for another Demo.

First up is the Large Oval Box..

  • Megaflake : Sheffield Steel
  • Flitterglu Kit
  • Pink Iced Gem English Cottage Acrylic Paint
  • Peppermint Tea English Cottage Acrylic Paint

to finish the box I embelished the top with some mulberry chrysanthemums and sweetheart blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts.

  1. Hi Sarah, these are lovely!! I must ask, he did you get such good coverage on the box lid with the stamp/flitterglu/mega flakes – looks awesome, I don’t get good contact on box kids, which is why I ask. Boxes both lovely!! Wish I’d bought the banana custard paint now!! Will add to my stash….. Maxine x

    1. Hi Maxine…

      I got good glue coverage on my lid by flitterglu’ing my stamp on a slim jim, then leaving it on my desk stamp faced up, then I took the box lid and pressed it down onto the stamp (rather than stamping onto the box lid) that way you are guaranteed a good impression ..

      Hope that helps 🙂 Sarah x
